View Full Version : Indiana Hunter Help Please.

I have a friend who lives 15 min from Versailles State Park and he has invited me to come out there mid Nov. to stick some deer. He does not hunt and has no knowledge on the subject other than he sayhs there are a lot of deer around. I live in Utah and have never even been to Indiana. I am usually chasing Mule Deer in rough steep mountain terrain, but never pass up a chance to go for some whitetails. Can some of you locals give me any info on what to expect out there? I know that the area is public land and 11k acres so there should be plenty of room, but is it overrun with hunters? How is the deer quality/quantity. Any info is appreciated...

I have never been to versaille but I have hunted public land in the northern part of the state and i will say that Nov. 11 is the beginning of firearms season i believe and the state parks are normally loaded with people to get a deer during firearms season, but if you go before then you will probably be ok, not as many archers.
